I found the Grothmar and first three Bjora strikes to be pretty sparsely attempted, but this new one seems completely DOA. It's been TWO DAYS since release and every time I check I see no groups in LFG, no one in the public instance, and no tag on the map for it.
Dungeon running was popular back in the day, and if we're being honest most paths, at least the popular ones, were just skipping over stuff to get to the boss fights. Since a strike is basically just a boss fight on steroids shouldn't these be more popular? I mean... just a day after release and no one's doing it at all?
From what I've seen this new one is much like the last ones - overly busy visuals so you can't really tell what you need to avoid and what you can tank through. With the right group you stack up and you'll be fine, otherwise it's wipetown with little indication of what you did wrong. But no hard checks on DPS or mechanics, so if you tinker with comp and build it seems doable for pugs. This one doesn't even seem to have any breakbars to manage.
So... what gives? Is it actually that it's too new and no one wants to do it with LFG groups yet? Maybe once it's more widely known how to tackle it repeatably we'll see more groups? Is it just that there's so much other content now that is more rewarding? The larger group size requiring too much waiting? Something else?
